A24 has released the trailer and poster for Enemy, the new film from Denis Villeneuve that re-teams the Prisoners director with leading man Jake Gyllenhaal, this time setting the actor up in double roles.
Also starring Isabella Rossellini, Melanie Laurent and Sarah Gadon, Enemy is based on the novel “The Double” by Jose Saramongo. It opens in limited theaters on March 14.
Enemy tells the story of a university lecturer named Adam (Gyllenhaal) who is nearing the end of a relationship with his girlfriend Mary (Laurent). One night, while watching a film, Adam spots a minor actor who looks just like him. Consumed by the desire to meet his double, Adam tracks down Anthony, an actor living with his pregnant wife Helen (Gadon) and engages him in a complex and dangerous struggle. The film is a haunting and provocative psychosexual thriller about duality and identity, where in the end only one man will survive.
